Overview

In partnership with Traditional Owner groups, Parks Victoria is preparing a new management plan for the Grampians landscape, an area that covers the Grampians National Park and adjacent parks and reserves.

The new management plan (the plan) will underpin strategic planning for the Grampians landscape over the next 15 years to ensure that precious environmental and cultural values of this iconic landscape are preserved for future generations to enjoy.

The scope of this project includes environmental conservation, cultural heritage and protection of Aboriginal rock art, recreational activities, tourism opportunities, safety and visitor experience.

You can contribute to the plan in the following ways:

  • Register for a community workshop below
  • Attend a listening post in the local area
  • Provide feedback online below (underneath the community listening post information)
  • Register your interest in the project so we can keep you aware of any project updates

Discussion papers have been prepared on a range of management topics. These can be downloaded from the background information section on this page.

Feedback and ideas are being sought below and at workshops until midnight Sunday 6 October.

Register for a community workshop

Parks Victoria is hosting two-hour workshops to collect input from stakeholders and community members to inform the Grampians Landscape Management Plan.

At the workshop you will:

  • learn about the Grampians Landscape Management Plan process
  • explore the challenges for managing this highly valued landscape for the next 15 years
  • share your knowledge of using, living near, managing or connecting with this landscape
  • provide your input on key decisions.

Venue sizes are limited and RSVPs are essential. You can RSVP by clicking on the event below.

Please note - to ensure everyone has the opportunity to contribute, we ask that you attend one session only.

If you cannot attend a workshop, you can participate online or visit a listening post in the local area.
